MoDOT will close eastbound and westbound lanes of I-270 at Washington/Elizabeth for three nights next week

Motorists who regularly use I-270 in North St. Louis County should be aware that the Missouri Department of Transportation will close all eastbound I-270 lanes at Washington/Elizabeth nightly beginning Thursday, October 15.

In addition, westbound I-270 traffic will be reduced to a single lane with 15-20-minute intermittent closures.

The nightly closures are scheduled to take place Thursday, October 15 through Saturday, October 17 from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. Motorists can use Pershall Road as a detour route.

The closures will allow workers to set beams (girders) in place that will support the bridge deck.  

Drivers are encouraged to visit the I-270 North Project website at: to learn more about planned detours and details of the project, including a project overview and graphic displays of planned construction. Travelers can also contact MoDOT’s customer service center at 1-314-275-1500 or the I-270 North Project Team at:
